    C2E does not have advertising, nor the mechanism to produce pop up ads.

    I get that but could someone who doesnt have admin access insert some sort of web code or something making the site produce popups?

    popups? No.

    Most likely there is a virus on your computer - download microsoft security essentials if you have vista or 7 and do a scan. If you have Windows 8 make sure windows defender is on and run a scan.

    ^I think i found the issue it was fracking bloatware something i never really get as for the viruses. Ha i have never had a virus on any of my computers in all the time i have been on them. And ew windows 8 should have never been made i will keep windows 7 any day.

    I keep my stuff up to date and scan once a month. I cringe at the people i help when i see their computers and they haven't updated anything ever. Im like why in gods name do you have a computer if your not going to take care of it.

    No. I'm the only one with full site access and root access. Both have rotating passwords that are long and abstract.

    I would scan at least once a week if I were you.

    ^The last scan i did after all this came up were just tracking cookies. Avg locked and deleted those away, so all is good again it must have been something i downloaded the other day, and it had stupid *** bloatware in it, even though i said no to installing it pisses me off to no end.

    I have the latest version of Firefox (26.0), and I'm experiencing no malware or virus at all.
    Is there hope for Edmonton? Yes!!! The Oilers? Wait and see.

    Viruses and Malware, I haven't had one of those in almost 10 years.
    I'm surprised people are still getting these.
    Edmonton first, everything else second.

    Try researching Better Surf. It's something that got installed on my PC. Then it made pop ups appears on some sites.

    Easy enough to disable and get rid of.
